Numbered Captions

Numbered Captions provide a way to consistently caption figures, tables, and more. Numbering is automatically incremented separately for each type. Captioned items can be referenced from the same page or other pages and include links to the captioned item.

Numbered Captions can be combined with the Easy Numbered Heading application to inherit the heading property to number the caption.
